We don't have call waiting. This modem has worked right for over a year. Now for the last few weeks, the phone in the other room (on same phoneline as modem) rings periodically while we are online. The internet connection then hast to be redialed. Often the modem hangs at this point and the computer must be restarted. The modem is a Zoom USB v92 connected to a pc with XP. Any ideas?

If you don't have call waiting, there's no way that an incoming call while online/offhook can cause a disconnection because the telco doesn't send any kind of signal - the caller should get a busy signal.
Try checking your modem's post-call diagnostics and modemlog to see if there's anything unusual there; also check Zoom for modem driver update.

Aloha! Richard.
